Baki Hanma Season 2 Episode 13: Martial Artist Baki
After taking his final fighting pose, Pickle flexed his muscles and loosened his giants, which revealed scars from a T-rex bite. Retsu and Hanayama who are spectating, clap their hands, as a show of appreciation and respect for Pickle, who survived the jaws of a T-Rex.
Pickle tries attacking Baki, but Baki’s martial arts are far superior. Baki mocks Pickle and tells him that he will show what a modern human being, who has mastered the art of fighting can do. Baki easily manages to dodge Pickle and using his counters, knocks out Pickle.
Baki does not deliver the finishing blow and instead decides to battle it out with Baki. The two have a long-standing duel and they both fall unconscious to the ground. Retsu believes that Pickle won, but Hanayama tells him that Baki is the clear winner, as Pickle was the one who did not deliver the final blow.
